I always adopt never shop. He has been such a fun, dopey, but smart dog. He loves everyone, is great with adults and kids a like. I am a groomer and bath him every 2 to 3 weeks so he doesn’t shed much at all. Morty has been pretty easy to train as long as you stay consistent. He knows basic commands and lots of fun tricks. He is very needy and hates being alone. So training is a must so you can just bring them along most places. However he does seem to want to go after bunnies and birds, but has done pretty good with our two cats. He has grown up with the cats so was taught early not to chase them. Very healthy but he does have slight allergies I have noticed with the changing of seasons. Most dogs these days unfortunately have some allergies though. It is a pleasure to own such an awesome dog and wouldn’t trade him for the world.
